Christmas in the oul’ country

This time last year I had a lot of fun putting together a little video of Christmas in Seattle, so I decided to do it again this year from the other side of the world. Here are a few images of Christmas this year in Ireland.

After the celebrations have ended, all that remains is to try to beat the crowd to the post-Christmas sales. I saw these guys this morning getting a head start.

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

      Thanks Gunta, I had a nice, low-key day with a fantastic walk along coastal cliffs to burn off far too much Christmas dinner! Hope you had a great day too! xxx Ailsa

  8. Wonderful video, Ailsa! I enjoyed watching it very much. And the music from The Nutcracker is the perfect touch. Happy holidays!

    Merry Christmas and thank you for this wonderful trip in Ireland over Christmas. The sheep were the perfecting ending – just like I always imagined. 😉
